a chondroma of a koida) — the complexes formed by chondroitinsulphuric acids with proteins; represent one of groups of proteoglycans. The term «hondromukoproteida» in modern literature is practically not used since it testifies only to a source of receiving these proteoglycans (cartilaginous tissue) and indicates their viscous consistence. Even more often apply equivalent terms — «gli-kozaminoproteoglikana», or just «proteoglycans» to designation of hon-dromukoproteid that emphasizes existence in a molecule of hondromukopro-teid of a covalent bond between a carbohydrate part and a proteinaceous component.
